Callimus angulatus angulatus is developing in freshly dead wood of thinner branches of deciduous trees about 2-8 cm in diameter. The larva begins feeding under the bark and then continues into the wood. According to laboratory breeding, the development time is 1-2 years. Pupation in late summer or autumn, adults hatch after a few weeks and hibernate in the pupal cells. Adults emerge from late April to June and can be beaten from the branches/leaves of the host trees or found on flowers (Crataegus, Rosa, Apiaceae, etc.).
